I am a GPS newbie, who yesterday equiped himself with the pretec bluetooth GPS unit to go alongside my XDA II. It works beautifully, Pocket Streets and Navio completely replace and surpass my old Garmin unit. HOWEVER... I have a huge library of OS maps which I which to make use of on my walks. I have searched the internet for software to supply the British Grid Refrence but have been without luck.

Can anyone please tell me of any software that can provide this data for me (in realtime) or software for the pocket pc with which I could convert gps data to OSGB to use my maps.

Many thanks

Welcome to the site!

There's a fair bit of free software about for manually converting positions between WGS84 and OSGB, not least my own Pocket PC program which you'll find here:

I'd suggest that you also look at the Pocket PC Topographical forums to see what software is available. The Other Software forum has a topic at the top which lists further convertors that may suit your needs better than my one.
